Description Scenes & Extras
When Nancy Wilson won her second Grammy in 2005 for "Outstanding Vocal Jazz Performance," it capped a great career that began when she was 15 in Columbus, Ohio. In 1961 she embarked on a recording career at Capital records that would see her second only to The Beatles in album sales on that label, topping even Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee and the Beach Boys. Two albums, "Broadway My Way" and "Hollywood My Way", made her a household name.

Nancy Wilson has never allowed herself to be classified as just a jazz singer. She has worked hard to offer her audience a wide spectrum of songs that include both jazz and the best of American popular music. She has successfully recorded over 40 albums and CDs for both the Capitol and Columbia labels. In 1991, she recorded a very successful CD "With My Lover Beside Me" with Barry Manilow, who wrote music to unpublished lyrics of Johnny Mercer, for her to record, exclusively.

Nancy Wilson, a beautiful woman who is also an actress of note, has been seen in performance many times. However, this 1993 evening of singing at the famed Blues Alley in Washington, D.C. was originally intended for A&E’s "Biography" but was never released. It is a definitive evening of Nancy’s, during which she performs many of her well known songs including her GRAMMY winning "How Glad I Am," "I Have Never Been To Me" and the classic "Guess Who I Saw Today?" This "ENCORE" concert presents Nancy Wilson at her memorable best.
